Lucinda’s 15 Top Indian Takeaways

Millie & Santosh Thomas won the hearts of the people of SoCoDu with their wonderful little restaurant in Blackrock Market, so much so that they had to extend their premises twice. I recently had a fantastic takeaway including four small dishes — vibrant red prawn koliwada (€13.95); samosa chaat (crushed samosa on chickpeas) (€9.99); palak pakora chaat (crispy fried spinach) (€9.99); and ragada pattice (€10), which is a popular street food of crispy potato cakes on white peas. We centred this lot with a sizeable and colourful gluten-free chicken biryani (€24.95) and a mildly spiced chicken shahjahani curry (€19.50). Their colourful food is a celebration in itself and perfect for back-garden dining.

Ananda, in the penthouse of Dublin's Dundrum Town Centre, is the elegant flagship of Asheesh Dewan’s Jaipur Group, which also encompasses terrific restaurants in Dalkey, Malahide, and in Greystones as Chakra. It is currently operating a ‘Curated Dine at Home Menu’ including an Old Delhi Chaat Platter (€9.50) with seared potato and pea cakes, and shortcrust samosa with chutneys; Punjab jhinga (€12.50); Goan seafood curry (€20) and butter chicken (€19). Try the Thaali Sampler (€23) — a selection of dishes along with pulao rice, garlic naan, cucumber raita and pickle. There’s also a tasting menu for two at €70; a midweek early bird (€26) and a kids’ menu.
